Finally I have a chance to make this popular cake, my RAINBOW!
But instead of making the whole cake, I make the cupcake version.

They are so pretty and cute, aren't they?
And it tastes good as well :)


1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 and 3/4 cups plain flour, sifted
150 gr sugar
2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
food coloring (red, blue, green and yellow)


  1. Put butter in a mixing bowl.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together in separate bowl.
  3. With a mixer, mix the dry ingredients in slowly with the butter.
  4. Add 1/2 cup milk and the egg to the dry ingredients and beat until flour is fully moistened.
  5. Add the remaining milk, vanilla and beat for about another minute.
  6. Evenly divide the batter into six small bowls. Dye each bowl of batter a rainbow color; Purple – 9 red and 6 blue drops, Blue – 12 drops, Green – 12 drops, Yellow – 12 drops, Orange – 12 yellow and 4 red drops and Red– 18 drops.
  7. Line 12 muffin pan wells with baking cups. Evenly distribute the purple batter among the cups, then the blue, green, yellow, orange and then top with red, following the order listed. As you go, gently spread each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the color underneath.
  8. Bake at 375F for 15 to 18 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.
